6:07 am
did i screw up? [ bleep ] i need to fix this. people are sending me numbers of crisis managers, what? i never leave my house. i don't have reason. wow, yes we wanted to address this yesterday. we had to hold off but my good friend bill press joins me now. look at that on the news maker line. he's making news with me. >> good morning stephanie. >> stephanie: good morning, bill press. >> caller: you and i can get in trouble together. >> stephanie: you've always been a bad influence on me. >> caller: it's the other way around girlfriend. >> stephanie: we would have been separating in class. current came to you and i and said we wanted to do a food drive for the needy.
6:08 am
whydon't you and bill press have a competition. we were both away over the holidays. we knew there was anti-gay stuff stuff. did i not do my research. i did not realize how long of a history there had been in controversy in anti-gay stuff. a, i'm gay. if you didn't know, i guess i'm a bad gay. they're going to throw me out. >> caller: they're going to send you to marcus bachmann. we both screwed up. and it's too bad. the salvation army has done an awful lot of good for an awful lot of people. i always put money in the "red kettle" when i walk by particularly this time of year. that to me is one thing that is sad about it. >> stephanie: no, that's absolutely right bill.
6:09 am
as liberals we also believe in redemption. i think we were assured they were going to address this. i was doing a brief interview just to kick off the drive for the holidays, but it looks to me bill, the things that our guest from the salvation army said are not necessarily true. i think they're trying to change and they're trying to improve their image, but as you were saying this morning it remains in their mission statement. >> it does. their mission statement said they're anti-gay marriage, and there have been things as recently as this summer where the salvation army official in australia said that gays should be put to death because that matches scripture. that is hard to square with what our mission statement is. >> stephanie: i know in the "washington post" and other articles some of them go back to 2011. have they changed? are they trying to do better.
6:10 am
you and i talked ultimately that we don't feel comfortable putting our names to this. >> caller: no, there are policies there that we can't--i would say we can support them. it's not as liberals or conservatives, democrats or republicans, as americans we can support. i would hope that the salvation army would see these policies should no longer be condoning whatsoever, or anybody connected with their organization anywhere in the world that would espouse these policies and clean up their acts. i would hope that they would. >> stephanie: i think it was back in 2011 in the "washington post" the coast was the bush administration is working with the salvation army to working against discrimination in hiring homosexualities. they never discriminate, which
6:11 am
he said to us. but when it comes to hiring gays it chews away at the american fabric of who we are. i think they do do good work, but you and i just thought--mostly it came out of my white-hot competition against you, my, like, blind ambition to outcompete you in everything. >> caller: you knew you were going to get your ass whooped on that. >> stephanie: easy for you to say now press. anyway, bill already announced it on his show but effective immediately we are not the salvation army is not going to be a sponsor. i believe--i don't know what the number was 1,150 was in my kettle. i'm going to match that and give it to the trevor project, which is my good friends here in
6:12 am
los angeles. the nation's only 24-hour crisis hotline or gay and lesbian youth. >> caller: i'll join you why that with whatever was in our kettle. i'll do the same. again, it's sad to me because the salvation army has such a great reputation in almost every other area. they've done a lot of great work, and i really hope that they see moving forward they've got more to do. >> stephanie: they're welcome to come back on. i'm happy to have them come back on. i know you hadn't done the interfereinterview yet. i thought it was kicking off our charity thing. i did not do my research. i asked him. i'm reading the news story about myself. he said discriminateing against gay and lesbian would violate
6:13 am
the very imagination of the salvation army. he said that it does not discriminate against hiring gays. those were questions that i had asked. had i prepared for this interview like i normally would you would have challenged him on a few more things. again, my bad. let me just mark this date in time because i never--i am never wrong. chris--chris can virtually tell you that one. but boy when i'm wrong, it's one for the ages. >> yeah, it's a pr crisis when you're wrong i do not one thing that you and i have learned watching others not do this. when you're wrong, just say you're wrong and then move on. >> stephanie: we've spent about the entire campaign factually practically fact-free. and the president always says
6:14 am
that the buck stops there. we criticized george bush never took responsibility for anything. to say i was wrong, i screwed up we tried to fix it yesterday. everyone was well-intentions. the salvation army does good work, but we don't feel comfortable putting our names on it and we screwed up. as i say the trevor project is something--for me, bill, it's particularly hard. you know i've been an outspoken advocate for gay rights for years, even before i came out and we've been giving to sexy liberal causes during the sexy liberal tour. this hurt my heart, and my southern friend would say this hurt my heart. >> caller: all i can say don't get me in trouble. >> stephanie: youif you would stop doing what i tell you to you to do, but you're so malleable.
6:15 am
you're an officer and a gentleman. thank you, press. he's a gentleman and a scholar actually. >> he is. not really an officer so much. >> stephanie: i made him one. >> okay, promoted him. >> stephanie: can i make him an officer of the trevor project? i think i can do that. >> i think you have some "in" there. >> stephanie: indeed. all right, that wasn't so hard, was it. [applause] >> the effort matching yesterday. >> stephanie: that was the most i ever had to say--when you suddenly have 74 e-mails, i was like, what's going on? >> i saw it happening during the show. i wasn't paying close attention to the charlie pierce interview. i think you called for a sound bite. >> stephanie: you had those roger rabbit eyes. >> i was starting control. >> stephanie: we wanted to fix it right away.
6:16 am
>> absolutely. >> stephanie: you can't just act on your own. >> a lot of people to corral to fix it. >> stephanie: fixers, as they say. okay. so any way we--we do--i sincerely apologize. >> i do, too. i was part of this booking as well and i apologize for not doing all the research. we thought we were doing something goodbye kicking off a fundraising event to help the needy, and i didn't do the research, sorry. >> stephanie: i'm a bad gay. jim, you and i need to coincide because i should have known. you know me. you're saying, are you reading what they're saying? no, i never go in there. i don't go in there on a regular day. are you reading what they say about you on facebook? we have to give some props. a couple of friends on the show. >> john arabosos. he really held our feet to the fire, and we appreciate it. >> stephanie: i've had john on and we're allies in the same
6:17 am
cause, and he got me. i screwed up. >> and mike senorelli. he has a great show, and he held our feet to the fire. did he a little defending of us on his show against callers who were calling in and saying some really awful, awful things. >> stephanie: i have to say thanks everybody who said something mean about me, yesterday. thanks for having my back in a crisis. much appreciated. >> thanks to those two for holding our feet to the fire and keeping up our standards. >> stephanie: can i say one thing, too. bill knows this. he has been a friend for years. not a guy with a better heart and trying to do great work in the world, and this was an honest--the thing is if they're trying to change at the salvation army, and if they're--i hope it's not just an image makeover. i hope they would really alter not just some of the things that they say in their mission
6:18 am
statement and that kind of thing, but again if someone said they're an evangelical christian organization. i don't obviously agree with--they can't be responsible for what everybody says. some guy in australia said one thing, but again, it's just been too long--what i was not aware of was the length and depth of their record on gay rights. >> it goes back a long time. >> stephanie: i thought they were trying to change, fix it, okay, thank you everybody. the one or two people who sent me letters of support. that person, you know who you are. >> there were a couple. >> stephanie: i want to say thank you for that. >> i guess we can throw this away then. >> stephanie: here. thanks. okay. oh jim you scoundrel. there's that. hey, it's on to a wednesday show. we have hal sparks in hour number three, we have

6:20 am
soda stream converts water into fizzy stuff. i'm bleeding, what have i done to myself? i literally cut myself while i'm talking. i am a spaz. >> this is not a dangerous job. >> stephanie: do i have workman's comp. >> i don't know, you're the boss. >> i need to look into that. >> when you said you would cut a bit. >> stephanie: look, i cut myself. >> blood on your prep sheets. >> stephanie: i need it put this under the sowed at a dream. stream. >> you know what will get that out? a little water from soda stream. >> stephanie: you have saved yourself from the debacle. this is great drinks for friend and people you know and love.

7:24 am
we know psychologically people know someone who is gay it tends to challenge their antithipy and it's a matter of who we choose to love. you know, this year in particular with the president throwing his support behind marriage equality and same sex marriage, we see that opinion at the ballot box. this was an historical year. in fact, to mark that and represent that, we did something that i think is kind of really extraordinary, thanks to the good folks at the white house. we have to shoot a photograph of lgbt members at the white house. and that seemed to me that it
7:25 am
fit in with an extraordinary year. >> stephanie: aaron, i've been curious, how do you choose the out 100. when you make your decisions what do you take into account? >> well, a couple of things. we have a team of editors. primarily we're looking at people who have brought them or their work to attention to prominence in one way or another another, or an activist who has done something worthy of acknowledgment. actually whittling it down to 100, one thing i have to say when i started this magazine six or seven years ago often it's been actually quite difficult to find people who stood out in some way and we don't have that problem now. >> stephanie: that's progress, and i was going to say i love

7:33 am
might make it pretty easy to get over it. with tom coal the republican from oklahoma saying that we just ought to go ahead and pass the tax cuts for the 98% and then fight for the rest of it later. that's what we've been saying on our side. we can do that if five minutes. >> stephanie: that's what nancy pelosi said, extending middle class tax cuts wrought further delay. she said we remain optimistic that we're going to reach an agreement, are you? >> i was less optimistic before tom cole made a statement. tom is held in pretty high regard. he's not what is generally considered a moderate on the republican side. he's a very, very good guy and member of the bourbon caucus, by the way. >> stephanie: ha ha, hee hee. >> caller: which is why he has become so reasonable. so many times people in politics
7:34 am
confuse principle and policy. the difference between 98% of people getting their tax cuts extended to 100. that's not a principle that's a policy. it's the same people saying well, we can eliminate deductions and do these other things. that's just semantics. people's taxes are going to go up. they're going to go up. whether you call it a rate hike, deductions or something else. they're just playing word games. in fact, there is very little distance between republicans and democrats on this issue right now. >> stephanie: senator durbin said this yesterday. >> we're not going to find ourselves in some big party and then turn around and have a doomsday scenario as a debt ceiling. >> stephanie: are we or are they going to do some temporary fix and kick the can down the road? >> caller: well, i hope the debt
7:35 am
ceiling is a part of it. the spending cuts, the across the board cuts, the so-called sequester, i think that will get kicked down the road. right now we can't afford to have significant reduction that will impede the economy. i think we need to take a little bit more careful approach to those kinds of cuts if we're going to talk about 1 trillion-dollar over ten years. so i suspect that can will get kicked down the road, but the tax rates really should be dealt with right now. they're easy to deal with. the debt ceiling should really be, that's one of those other things we can create a crisis unnecessarily. this country is not going to basically deny it's debt. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: so anyway, i think we can do it. i think saner heads might prevail. i just left a meeting with gene
7:36 am
sperling. he said the president is not going to amend the tax cuts. if he is, the republicans better get on board. >> stephanie: i took heart in that. the president is not being fooled so far. he is not saying that we're we're going to close a loophole, and it's not going to produce the revenue that is necessary right. >> caller: exactly right. if you deal with deductions no matter what you do you can't get to any significant number. the very very wealthy americans really don't have that many deductions. all they have is the charitable deductions which no one wants to do away with. they don't have big home mortgages, they own their home or homes as in mitt romney's case. so eliminating deductions doesn't do anything to them just as that one suggestion that came out of the senate, tax the first
7:37 am
$400,000 at 35%. that penalizes someone who is at $450,000 and nothing to someone who is at $10 million. >> stephanie: can you say to one of these republicans for me. guess what, you lost. you don't get to enact mitt romney's plan. i mean, i've been talking about this, you know, one of the things that drives me crazy is not just republicans but the mainstream media. right after the election david gregory asked someone on meet the press do you think the president should bring mitt romney to help negotiate this his wall cliff. what now? >> caller: well, elections we keep saying, they do have consequences. the most important election was president obama getting re-elected because now he has all the cards. >> stephanie: that's right. >> caller: it's just like in many cases democrats and the minorities in the house like to think we have leverage, which we usually don't.
7:38 am
the republicans have no leverage right now. >> stephanie: as he pointed out even people who didn't vote for him agree with him on taxes. if you look at polling they agree with us in the rich paying their fair share. one thing i'm sick of them saying over and over again no, we elected a republican house. we can say it over and over, but it's because of jerrymandering. a million more people voted for democrats in the house even, than for the senate. >> caller: exactly. what i consider more importantly if you look at the areas of the country where most of the commerce and most of the economic activity occurs, 80% of it or more is in urban areas and urban areas overwhelmingly voted for president obama and democrats in the congress. i mean, that's where the democrats' strength lies. again, that's where most of the economic activity is generated. it's even more--they have a lot
7:39 am
of counties with very few people who voted for them. >> stephanie: right. representative yarmuth, before you go, this susan rice thing. do you agree with us? this to me looks like this was a setup. they pretend to be softening and then open to what she has to say, and then everyone has confirmed that she was giving the best intelligence that she had at the time and now they're even more troubled. she goes to talk to them, and now they say this is even worse. where is the controversy here, can you tell me? >> caller: i have no idea. this is one of the most confusing things i've heard in a long time. what they've successful successfully ended up doing john mccain and lindsey graham, the president will nominate her. they've forced that to happen now. they're going to be embarrassed. and she'll exonerate herself in
7:40 am
the confirmation hearings for everybody to see. i don't understand what their game is. it's totally misguided. >> sour grapes. >> stephanie: the rumor is that they'll nominate john kerry and scott brown can run and get a senate seat back. who knows. >> cenk: well, the rumor here as you probably know, that dynamic would be in play any way. >> stephanie: that's what i was thinking. he's going to be nominated any way. >> caller: i don't know what their game is. >> stephanie: who knows. it's always like a rubics cube. thank you for joining us were the bourbon caucus. we love him. >> i love him so much. >> stephanie: felecia, go ahead. >> caller: you keep calling me

leadership. they'll do anything for leadership. step up the microphone. they're thirsty for it. they'll crawl through the dessert to a mirage, and when they discover there is no water they'll drink the sand. they don't drink the sand because they're thirsty. >> stephanie: penn jillette, you yelled at me for an entire hour about me saying it was my favorite movie ever. >> caller: you did not say it was your favorite movie. you said it was the best move ever. those are two different things. >> they are two different things. >> stephanie: whatever, penn. >> caller: not whatever, not whatever. it's accurate. >> citizens cane, vertigo they may be the best movies ever. >> stephanie: i love you forever, but once in a while i wish you were the silent one. >> caller: yeah, me, too me too. >> stephanie: let's talk about your new book, "every day is an
7:50 am
atheist holiday." >> caller: yes, that's the book. and it's celebration of the day-to-day life with a lot of digressions about things that happen to me. >> stephanie: i love that your unique way of celebrating thanksgiving involves unzipping your pants. >> caller: you got to do than. that's important. i tell a few stories about thanksgiving. one story that i love about captain bano, wrestler, having thanksgiving with a bunch of wrestlers, and someone betting him $100 and then everyone getting covered in grease and that burn we know out the window. >> stephanie: many celebrations begin with unzipping your pants. >> caller: i'm trying to think of any celebration that doesn't start with me unzipping my pants. i'm trying to think of a counter
7:51 am
example and nothing is coming to mind. >> stephanie: you say holiday is foryou say halloween is the slutty holiday. >> caller: that's why it's kicking christmas' ass. it is growing very quickly as the holiday. i have a story in the book about how i had a terribly embarrassing thing happen on halloween. my daughter was in kindergarten they had this thing called the mystery reader where someone came in to read a halloween story, one of the parents in costume, and the beautiful excitement of that was that the child would get to hear the voice and be excited to hear their parent reading. so i decided i was going to do a really old fashioned halloween thing and dress up as a ghost. i bought a sheet. cut the eyes out and put it over my head. at the time i was wearing a straw hat that i fancied that made me look like sinatra.
7:52 am
i put the sheet on and the hat and i walked into the reception and the woman behind the counter just screams. i said i'm not a real ghost. then i looked into the mirror and realized that a 6'7", 6'7", 300-pound man wearing a sheet does not look like a ghost but rather like a clan member. >> stephanie: i knew that's where you were going with that. >> caller: so it looked like with the straw hat that i had dressed up for my child's kindergarten class as a clan member kkk guys. >> wow. >> stephanie: awkward. >> caller: the teacher was appalled. i sat there in the chair in red and was really filled with a joy because to the kindergarteners that image really was one of the dads as a ghost. it's wonderful that they don't have that image in their head, but boy one of the most embarrassing moments in my life was finding out that i dressed
7:53 am
accidently as a member of the kkk. >> stephanie: if that's your story, i would stick with it. now penn i love--here's what i always wonder about because i'm not a parent. but the alcohol slutty thing for halloween, it has no age limit. parents dress their kids like little princess. it doesn't matter the age. >> caller: i don't get that at all. there is that whole princess culture. my daughter talks about princesses all the time. i always throw in, wouldn't you rather be a freedom fighter? wouldn't rather be susan b anthony that you would rather dress up as? she's a big american hero, not a princess, wouldn't you rather be--it just doesn't work. susan b anthony on ice. >> that's the farthest thing
7:54 am
from a princess actually. >> caller: i would like to think that the u.s. is as far from royalty as we can get. but sometimes it doesn't seem like that. >> stephanie: sandra day o'connor? margaret thatcher? not good selling costumes. >> caller: i do push. i do push for sue an b anthony an atheist who had stamped in her face, in god we trust. >> stephanie: you are a good sport for a clan member. the book is "every day is an atheist holiday." it's full of fun stories like that. >> i just purchased it from my kindle this morning i can't wait to read it. >> caller: wonderful. i hope you like it. >> stephanie: what a wonderful idea for your kindle. "every day is an atheist holiday." penn jillette, my good friend, talk to you soon. >> caller: always a pleasure. >> stephanie: i might say the

best man giggle ever. that's quite the raucous man giggle. >> yes. >> stephanie: one more here. bill in arlington hi, bill. >> caller: hi there, stephanie. >> stephanie: hi good, 30 seconds. >> caller: i was watching john mccain and others talking about meeting with rice, how troubled and disturbed they were. >> stephanie: very troubled. >> caller: it occurred to me that he was describing symptoms of geriatric dementia, and would explain some of his recent behavior. >> stephanie: you know, i can't tell if it's just general crankiness. that's what it seems like. bitterness. >> he has always been cranky. >> stephanie: you knew him from a long time ago. >> he has always been cringey. >> stephanie: he almost ran us over at a hotel. >> i remember that. >> stephanie: in a car. we were like, ya. >> i was looking at one of his hot a.i.d.s. >> stephanie: hump days with hal
